Kinsella insists spirits are still high in Saddlers camp

20 November 2020

Walsall midfielder Liam Kinsella insists the players are in a confident mood and says spirits are still high in the camp.

The Saddlers have suffered three consecutive defeats in all competitions and will be looking to bounce back when they take on Cheltenham Town tomorrow afternoon.

Kinsella stressed the team are keen to look forwards rather than over their shoulders and insisted the positivity in the camp has remained despite last week’s setback against Southend United.

“The mood will never go with the bunch of lads we have here, we’re always confident,” Kinsella said.

“We all know that we should be higher up in the table than we are now but it hasn’t happened at the moment. Fingers crossed, in the next few games we can put in big performances to get the points we need.

“We’re the type of team where we’ve got to look forward and up the table. We want to be further up the table than we are and that’s what we’re going to do.

“We’ll take it game by game, Cheltenham on Saturday and fingers crossed we can get the three points and move up the table.”

The Saddlers have two difficult away games coming up over the next four days with trips to Cheltenham and Newport County who are both currently sat in the automatic promotion spots in Sky Bet League Two.

Kinsella admitted the team will need to perform to their maximum against both sides but is looking forward to the challenge of facing two of the league’s stronger teams.

“I think they are first and third so you want to play against the big boys,” he commented.

“Both teams have had very good starts to the season but the confidence in our team and our group of lads, I feel like we can go somewhere and put in a performance to get the points we deserve but we need to turn up on the day.

“We need a big performance to a man and hopefully it will come.”
